Honda is set to unveil the all-new Honda WR-V Compact SUV at the upcoming Sao Paulo International Motor Show, from 10 – 20 November. The new Honda WR-V is produced for the South American continent at Honda R & D facility in Brazil. Sources revealed that the new WR-V could make its way to South East Asia, but it is subjected to an official remark from Honda headquarters.
The new Honda WE-V is realized as a vehicle that realizes both a “tough and urban” SUV design, which is popular among people who enjoy active lifestyles, and excellent utility within a compact body size. The new WR-V will be introduced to Brazil and further countries in South America. The new WR-V is the third compact SUV introduced in South America, following CR-V and HR-V.
From the initial sketch available from world Honda, the new WR-V will supposedly appear like the much likeable Honda Jazz, while in terms of specification, it will feature most of the technical specs of the Jazz. The new front fascia of the WR-V will take on some added elements especially on the grille and bumper. Other notable highlights are the headlight, foglight beams and wheel arches.
The side profile and rear should largely remain similar to its portrayal as a crossover vehicle. It gets new roof rails, a fin-shaped antenna, body-clad fixtures at the front and rear, as well as rear bumper elements and garnish.
The Honda WR-V will have interiors similar to the Jazz, as well. The WRV will have all black interiors. There will be an instrument cluster with three dials, one for speedometer, one for tachometer and the third will be a driver information system. The major features on the WR-V will be keyless entry, push start and stop, touchscreen infotainment system, cruise control, dual airbags and even ABS. The WR-V will even a lot of space at the rear, with reclining seats for added boot space and such.
In the engine department, the new WR-V is fitted with a 1.5-liter engine, unless otherwise specified, that will certainly derive an output of approximately 120 hp. The engine will most likely take on a five-speed automatic transmission or the popular CVT transmission package.
